Bills WR Stefon Diggs tallied 3 TDs in a Week 4 win over Miami. Diggs' highlights included one scramble drill score; another on a downfield ball that turned up some horrible tackle attempts by Miami DBs. The veteran has now hit 6+ catches in four straight. Next up is a home matchup with Jacksonville.

Bills QB Josh Allen went off on the Dolphins, tallying 320 yards and 4 TDs. He added 17 yards and a score on the ground. Allen leaned on Stefon Diggs, who exploded for 6-120-3 against a Fins defense that supplied little resistance. Allen’s now hit 25+ fantasy points in three straight. He’ll remain an elite option Sunday vs. Jacksonville.

The Bills have ruled S Jordan Poyer (knee) out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. That's not awesome news for Buffalo's defense against a team that already had Tyreek Hill and now returns Jaylen Waddle from a concussion. Taylor Rapp looks like the fill-in for Poyer and could see more tackle opportunities than the Bills would like. See where Rapp sits in our Week 4 DB rankings.

Bills WR Stefon Diggs went off for 8 catches and 111 yards against Washington. His 37.5% target share easily led the team, while Diggs is now averaging 8-93 through three games. It looked like the veteran picked up a left hand/wrist injury at one point, but he returned quickly and appeared 100%. Diggs should continue rolling in Week 4 (home vs. Miami).

Bills RB James Cook led the backfield with 15 carries and 98 yards in Week 3. He garnered only 3 targets on a day that saw Stefon Diggs dominate (37.5% target share). Cook also watched as Josh Allen and Latavius Murray tallied short-range rushing scores. It’s clear by now that the second-year back won’t carry a high TD ceiling. But his efficiency and overall touch volume suggest he can remain a strong RB2+. He draws the Dolphins at home in Week 4.

After missing the first two practices of the week, Bills TE Dawson Knox (back) returned to a full practice on Friday and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll be ready to split TE duties with Dalton Kincaid vs. the Commanders on Sunday.

Bills TE Dawson Knox (back) missed practice again on Thursday. It looks like he's in real danger of missing this weekend's game vs. the Jets, which would be a significant boost to TE Dalton Kincaid's fantasy outlook. Check back tomorrow for another update on Knox.

Bills TE Dawson Knox (back) missed practice again on Thursday. He's seemingly in danger of missing this weekend's game vs. the Commanders. Knox's absence would figure to turn TE Dalton Kincaid into close to an every-down player -- and a nice TE1 play in fantasy lineups.

Bills TE Dawson Knox (back) did not practice on Wednesday. WROC-TV's Thad Brown tweeted that Knox "seemed in good shape," so we're tentatively expecting him to be available for this weekend's game vs. the Commanders. We'll update Knox's status again tomorrow.

Bills TE Dalton Kincaid notched 5 catches (6 targets) for 43 yards in Week 2. He matched Dawson Knox in routes run – 22 – but it was Knox who cashed in with a goal line score. The rookie saw an end zone target of his own, but it fell incomplete. Kincaid also took a hard shot to his ribs on the play. We’ll keep an eye on his practice participation this week. If he’s ready to go for Week 3 (as we expect), Kincaid will likely slot in as a fringe TE1 at Washington.

Bills RB James Cook looked explosive in Sunday’s win over Las Vegas, totaling 159 yards on 21 touches. Both figures marked career highs. The second-year back also led all early-game RBs in rush yards over expectation (+44), per ESPN’s Seth Walder. He continued to lose out on red zone work to both Damien Harris and Latavius Murray. Still, his receiving work (10 targets in two games) really helps Cook’s floor. He’ll remain an RB2 moving forward.

Bills QB Josh Allen completed 31 of 37 passes for 274 yards and 3 TDs in a win over Las Vegas. Call it a predictable bounce back in a favorable matchup. The Raiders’ pass rush struggled to get home, and Allen made them pay both inside the pocket and out. His scores went to Dawson Knox, Khalil Shakir, and Gabe Davis. Allen remains a locked-in top-3 fantasy QB.

Bills WR Stefon Diggs caught 10 of 13 targets for 102 yards and a TD in Monday's loss vs. the Jets. This was a classic performance from Diggs. Fantasy managers likely fared better in their matchups than Buffalo did with that stat line. Diggs will look to keep the big numbers rolling vs. the Raiders in Week 2. Also worthy of mention is that rookie TE Dalton Kincaid hauled in all 4 of his targets for 26 yards in his NFL debut. A sub-10% target share isn't the most exciting item to see from Kincaid, though any production in lineups is appreciated given the week fantasy managers had with TEs.

Bills RB James Cook logged 12 carries for 46 rushing yards to go along with 4 catches and 17 receiving yards in Monday’s OT loss vs. the Jets. The second-year back received 18 of 25 total touch opportunities (72%) among Bills’ RBs in this contest, suggesting that the team is pretty comfortable using him in a workhorse role. While Cook didn’t have any big plays, fantasy managers are assuredly pleased to see the volume he received. He’ll have a chance to progress in Week 2 vs. the Raiders, a team that surrendered a combined 128 total yards to Broncos RBs on Sunday.

Bills QB Josh Allen completed 29 passes on 41 attempts for 236 passing yards with 1 TD and 3 INTs in Monday’s OT loss vs. the Jets. He also ran for 36 yards and lost a fumble at a crucial stage of the fourth quarter, a play that aided in swinging the momentum toward New York. Allen had a generally solid game, but a trio of INTs into the hands of Jets S Jordan Whitehead sunk his fantasy prospects. The All-Pro signal-caller can add his name to the list of big-name players who had a disappointing opening game. Allen will have a chance at redemption in Week 2 vs. the Raiders.

Bills TE Dalton Kincaid ran a route on 13 of QB Josh Allen's 19 dropbacks over the last two preseason games. That 68% route rate is a bit lower than we see from most fantasy TE1s. But it's a good starting point for a rookie. Kincaid's playing time is likely to grow over the course of the season. See exactly where he sits in our TE rankings.

Bills TE Dawson Knox played in Saturday's preseason finale. He missed Buffalo's second preseason game with a finger injury, but he's ready to go for Week 1. Knox's fantasy value obviously took a big hit with the addition of TE Dalton Kincaid, but Knox should still be on the field plenty with the Bills expected to run a lot of 2-TE sets.

The Athletic's Joe Buscaglia believes WR Khalil Shakir is currently fifth on the Bills' depth chart. He played fewer snaps with QB Josh Allen in the team's second preseason game than both WRs Trent Sherfield and Deonte Harty. Shakir is not worth a roster spot in redraft leagues at this point. We're tentatively expecting the Bills' primary 3-WR set to open the season to be Stefon Diggs and Gabriel Davis out wide, with Harty in the slot.

Bills TE Dawson Knox sat out Saturday's preseason game with a finger injury. Beat writer Joe Buscaglia labeled him as "day to day.” Even at full health, Knox isn’t a priority target in fantasy drafts.

Bills RB Damien Harris returned to practice Wednesday after missing a little more than a week with a knee issue. He still has nearly a month to get ready for the regular-season opener but will need to battle Latavius Murray for the No. 2 job behind expected starter James Cook. Harris has moved down our 2023 fantasy football rankings since the beginning of training camp.
